Re: I'm back.

I think that unlikely thedoc as I can't see that you were banned anywhere so maybe you just forgot them but welcome back.

Re: These have got to be robot registrants

You mean... they are paid by a special interest group to disrupt our site? You Americans. No, I mean they are automated spam bots. Their creator gets paid by click through revenue if people click the spam link and probably more if someone buys. They are cheap to make and run and work 24/7/365 and a...

Their bank-accounts tell them differently.

Re: These have got to be robot registrants

I'm tempted to ask admin to turn off the manual moderation of first posts and the subsequent banning of the spam bot to show you how wrong you are. The forum would vanish under the deluge as it is the above that keeps this forum so free of them.

Re: These have got to be robot registrants

FDP is probably right in this instance although it'd be poor practice by the admin not to have removed them later. Another alternative is they are spam bots that slipped through before we had mods or had implemented the policy of having first posts vetted by the mods before allowing the user to regi...

Re: Missing Thread

No. You deleted the Alinsky thread but Alinsky isn’t politics. It is an agenda that has the goal of communism. Politics is a tool which furthers an agenda. Communism is a belief system that should be discussed but cannot be since it requires those in favor and those opposed to it who are kicked off...

Re: Missing Thread

Nick_A: I am reasonably consistent, if it's blatent politics it goes. I am, if I say so myself, a most benevolent and tolerant tyrant hence I allow all sorts of loons to post their nonsense here, you for example. Any other philosophy forum would have banned many of you long ago but in my munificence...

Did they get lost or maybe they never really existed ? What say you about these mysterious individuals ?
No idea and have no inclination to ask.

Re: Missing Thread

Which would result in there being a skeleton forum and you with practically nothing to do and so where is the wisdom in this ? ... Sounds like bliss. You dont do very much as it is anyway judging by your post count so it is not as if you need a reduction in your workload is it ? I'm of the opinion ...

Re: Indoctrinating hate finale

I've yet to read what it is that you propose to teach people?

If you mean by 'secularist' this https://www.secularism.org.uk/what-is-secularism.html then I own that I have some sympathy, but not much, with the idea.

Re: Indoctrinating hate finale

This is simply untrue. Take two of my typical thread for example. The first was called the ONE. It is an explanation of Plotinus basic idea as to the source of existence. The second was called the Cosmic Man which introduces Einstein’s conception of human evolution. Neither has anything to do with ...

Re: Indoctrinating hate finale

... The mod knows that my interest is in verifying the ancient ideas which enable a person to acquire a universal rather than being limited to a conditioned perspective Plato described as if in a cave. They are intolerable for the believed supremacy of secularism so the mod’s reaction is as underst...

Re: Indoctrinating hate finale

Actually Nick_A I got rid of your post as it was once again one of your American-centric politically driven diatribes, which I for one am becoming heartily sick of not least because of your refusal to engage with any point that highlights errors in your thinking with respect to Philosophy and those ...
